Chris Avery DUI Lawyer Being impaired may not be qualified by blowing over 80 with a roadside breathalyzer if the officer made a roadside stop because you were driving erratically. If the officer suspects you are driving under the influence “ DUI” of alcohol or narcotics and you admit to having “a drink” you will be instructed to cooperate in a roadside physical test “walk a straight line” if there is physical evidence of inebriation.

There may also be an officer who is trained to identify narcotics impairment dispatched to assist in the evaluation.  If it is determined you are driving under the influence you may be placed under arrest and transported to the police station for further testing and evaluation. If Alcohol is suspected to be the impairment you will be asked to submit to a blood alcohol test.  The results of that Blood Alcohol test may be below the legal limit and that may eliminate the over 80 charge. You will be left with the charge of impaired to fight in court
